Holy Panton

Panton and Eames, Kostel sv. Bartolom?je
So, I guess I am a little out of the loop as this may have been passed around in 2007…but today I came across these images of St. Bartholomew’s Church in the Czech Republic designed by Jakub Berdych under the Qubus Studio umbrella (the same group who make the Boot Vase). What a mix of old and new! Rows and rows of Panton chairs punched with a crucifix and the clergy at the front get Eames chairs.

About Ali

I enjoy wood paneled station wagons, German food and senior citizens (I am 80 years old at heart). Nearly every weekend I am taking photos at other people's weddings and I have a blog of my own (but I don't update it often enough). I love to paint, sew and knit. Check out my DP Staff profile on Hatch.

    I remember seeing this and meaning to blog it awhile back – was it in Wallpaper*? I’m always amazed at all the different contexts in which I see the Panton chairs, from a balcony in Prague to a set of The Real World. The silhouette always reminds me a bit of the mud flaps chick, I don’t know why, but it kind of makes me laugh that they are holy seats here.

    These are very interesting. I think that they would make any place look very modern. It has a unique aura about it. Try this link also……..

    Oh, wow! I’d go to church if it looked like this…
